How Journalism is Changing in Today’s World NOVEMBER 17, 2019
In today’s world journalism has become a risky business. Newspapers are closing up shop every day in light of the digital age and in many ways it seems the profession is under attack both figuratively and literally. Reporters are being gunned down in newsrooms and the public is becoming more and more suspicious of the profession as the result of the concept of fake news. Bob Blubaugh is the editor of the Carroll County Times in Maryland and has been in the journalism field first as a sports reporter and now as an editor for over 20 years. He is experiencing these concerns firsthand and yet remains committed to the idea of community journalism and the important role it continues to play in our lives.
The profession of journalism is in a precarious state these days as a result of the concept of “fake news,” the influence of social media and the threat to the very existence of print media as a result of the digital age.
Bob Blubaugh, editor of the Carroll County Times in Maryland, recently talked with me for my first episode of The Human Condition with Lisa Gregory. He gives an insider’s view of the challenges editors and reporters are facing, including the very real threats and violence inflicted upon on them, as well as talking about his love of community journalism and how important it is now more than ever.
